acupuncture to balance health

Acupuncture

Although an ancient technique—with records of its use predating even the Bible—only recently have scientific techniques been able to help us understand how stimulating specific points just below the skin promotes the body’s natural healing capabilities.

In acupuncture, tiny needles are used to stimulate “meridians” or “acupoints”that typically lie 1/8th -1/2 inch below the surface. We now know that stimulating these acupoints changes brain activity in regions that coordinate pain, heart rate, emotions and even hormone response.

By stimulating specific points, meridians specifically selected based on your health situation, your nervous system enhances its function thus restoring the energetic balance (Qi) in the body.

Biopuncture

Commonly used to relieve the pain and promote healing after injury, biopuncture is clinically shown to stimulate the body’s self-healing process, especially the immune system, and has become an alternative solution for many degenerative maladies. By injecting homeopathic or other natural, pharmaceutical-grade biological remedies into acupuncture points and/or tender points, biopuncture can reduce inflammation and provides a safe and natural approach that is quite different than common conventional therapies. Because the needles used are very fine and the depth of the injection is shallow there is minimal discomfort.

I go to Hands on Health Care for all of my health and wellness needs.  Dr. Childers is an amazing Osteopath who keeps me put together despite numerous inflammatory health problems.  Whether it’s an adjustment, cranio sacral, medical acupuncture or bio puncture (yes I do it all), I can attest to the top quality of his medical care and his compassionate caring for his patients.  I love it that not only does he have medical training, he stays up on the latest natural therapies.  I enjoy my visits very much; I enjoy their sense of humor, their intelligent chats and spot on advice.

I also signed up to do nutritional guidance and lifestyle coaching with his brilliant wife Phyllis.  I have stably lost 10 pounds in two months.  I don’t have much to lose but metabolism got stuck and nothing was working. Finally it is coming off.  The bonus of adhering as best I can to her program is that my cholesterol is under 200 without medications!  I am ecstatic!  Phyllis has been great in helping me adjust to my new status of retired teacher.

I highly recommend Hands on Health Care for all of your health needs.  You won’t be disappointed.  Bravo!  ─Roni, age 62
